Awesome origin story for Peter Pan! I liked that he was not born magical, but was just a common boy having uncommon adventures. The romance between Peter and Molly felt a little forced though. IDK, remembering how I operated when I was 12, and not knowing how old Peter actually is... it was a little awkward. They were cute together though. The loyalty of Peter's friends was great. I liked that (even though I kept mixing up their names) the boys were not simply generic friends but each had a clearly delineated personality. Alf: I wish he was a good guy because he's so clever! Black Stache: It's cool to know who Hook was before he was Hook. Fighting Prawn: So bitter, but so interesting!
Good book for late elementary school and middle school kids. I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, but I obviously still enjoyed it. The writing was acceptable. It did some things that peeve me, though- sometimes the same adjective would be used to describe the same thing more than once within the same paragraph, and the edition I read had quite a few typos and missing punctuation marks in it. But I love it for the plot, setting, and characters.
